Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Larry Williams
    FORTIES
  • 1980
    Age 44
    Williams died in his Los Angeles, California home of a gunshot wound to the head on January 7, 1980.
    More Details Hide Details He was 44 years old. The death was deemed suicide, though there was much speculation otherwise. No suspects were ever arrested or charged. A Southern Illinois drummer and blues singer by the name of Martin Allbritton claims to be Larry Williams, alive and well. This claim originated at about the time Larry Williams was found dead. He recorded and performed as a drummer for Bobby "Blue" Bland in the 1960s. Albritton has toured the country performing under the moniker of "Big" Larry Williams, and claims that he recorded the hits "Bony Moronie" and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy". He recorded an album in 1990 called Street Party with the Mellow Fellows band, previously headed by Big Twist. While touring with the Mellow Fellows in Chicago, Allbritton was confronted by Etta James, who knew Larry Williams. Williams' family members have asked him to cease any future reference to "Larry Williams". Allbritton has so far refused, and presently continues to use the name.
  • 1977
    Age 41
    In 1977, Williams pulled a gun on and threatened to kill his long-time friend, Little Richard, over a drug debt.
    More Details Hide Details They were both living in Los Angeles and addicted to cocaine and heroin. Little Richard had bought drugs from Williams, arranged to pay him later, but did not show up because he was high. Williams was furious. He hunted him down but ended up showing compassion for his long-time friend after Little Richard repaid the debt. This, along with other factors, led to Little Richard's return to born again Christianity and the ministry, but Williams did not escape LA's seedy underworld. A native of Kenner, Louisiana and cousin of Kenner native Lloyd Price, Williams was inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame in a ceremony held on February 9, 2014. The date was the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles first American appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. The Beatles recorded three of Larry's songs: Bad Boy, Slow Down and Dizzy Miss Lizzy.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1966
    Age 30
    He produced two Little Richard albums for Okeh Records in 1966 and 1967, which returned Little Richard to the Billboard album chart for the first time in ten years and spawned the hit single "Poor Dog".
    More Details Hide Details He also acted as the music director for the Little Richard's live performances at the Okeh Club. Bookings for Little Richard during this period skyrocketed. Williams also recorded and released material of his own and with Watson, with some moderate chart success. This period may have garnered few hits but produced some of his best and most original work. Williams also began acting in the 1960s, appearing on film in Just for the Hell of It (1968), The Klansman (1974), and Drum (1976). In the 1970s, there was also a brief dalliance with disco, but Williams' wild lifestyle continued. By the middle of the decade, the drug abuse and violence were taking their toll.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1960
    Age 24
    He was convicted of dealing narcotics in 1960 and served a three-year jail term, setting back his career considerably.
    More Details Hide Details Williams made a comeback in the mid-1960s with a funky soul band that included Johnny "Guitar" Watson, which paired him musically with Little Richard who had been lured back into secular music.
  • 1958
    Age 22
    He recorded a number of songs in 1958 and 1959, including "Heebie Jeebies", with band members such as Plas Johnson on tenor saxophone and Jewel Grant on baritone, René Hall and Howard Roberts on guitars, Gerald Wilson on trumpet, Ernie Freeman or Williams himself on piano, and Earl Palmer on drums.

  • 1957
    Age 21
    In 1957, Little Richard was Specialty's biggest star, but bolted from rock and roll to pursue the ministry.
    More Details Hide Details Williams was quickly groomed by Blackwell to try to replicate his success. Using the same raw, shouting vocals and piano-driven intensity, Williams scored with a number of hit singles. Williams' three biggest successes were "Short Fat Fannie", which was his biggest seller, reaching #5 in Billboard's pop chart, "Bony Moronie", which peaked at #14, and its flip "You Bug Me Baby" which made it to #45. "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" charted at #69 on Billboard the following year. Both "Short Fat Fannie" and "Bony Moronie" sold over one million copies, gaining gold discs. Several of his songs achieved later success as revivals, by The Beatles ("Bad Boy", "Slow Down", and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy"), The Rolling Stones ("She Said Yeah") and John Lennon ("Bony Moronie" and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy"). After 1957 Williams did not have much success selling records.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1955
    Age 19
